Hosta 'Shiny Penny'

Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina registered this diminutive hosta in 1997. It is a hybrid of H. 'Lemon Lime' × H. 'Shining Tot'. The miniature size (5 inches high) plant has ovate shaped, smooth textured leaves. Pale purple flowers appear in late July on 14 inch tall scapes.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Since its introduction, 'Shiny Penny' has been recognized as one of the best dwarfs for the shade garden. It makes a great edging plant, but can also be planted in troughs."
